The application process is done in such a way that students that not only have academic prowess but also several other talents and passions makes this campus a truly diverse experience. There are a lot of philanthropic opportunities, as well as many clubs that give leadership lessons in whatever the student desires. Because Georgia Tech is a world-class campus, the opportunities offered to the students are many and are also well-funded for those who do not have a lot of money themselves. Because of this, over half of the student body participates in a program of campus before they graduate, which will normally be things like an internship, co-op, or studying abroad. The professors at this institute are extremely knowledgable in what they teach and most make an effort to meet the student where they need in order to further their academic progress. Overall, everyone on campus strives for greatness and bringing something into the world that helps them accomplish their dreams. Go Jackets!

Georgia Tech is a prestigious research university located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, a fast-paced, growing community at the crux of the city's current boom. Not for the faint-of-heart, Georgia Tech is highly rigorous and consistently churns out some of the best and brightest minds into all areas of business, with a specific emphasis on the technology sector. Classes will push even the smartest students out of their comfort zones and will imbue in them a powerful work ethic which generates top-rate employment opportunities post-graduation. Student life is often described as "work hard, play hard" with students sharing a common bond over their collective academic struggles. The student population is very diverse and easy access to Atlanta allows students the opportunity to explore and take a break from their studies.
Everyone here is family and we look out for one another, we are a group of people trying to make an impact on the world. We understand what it means to take a class that seems impossible, we understand what it means to crack a hard problem, and more importantly- we know what it feels like to fail. Together we grow, together we fail, together we learn, TOGETHER WE SWARM!
